[Graded][Closed] Complications Arise

Post by Katya » Wed Oct 17, 2018 12:24 pm

Ume had no concept for the passage of time. Hours felt like days, and they had been harsh. Koyama was too heavy for her to lift or drag even, and so after the man had breathed his last, after she had cried over him until she had nothing left, she knew she had to find a way to put his body and its secrets to rest as well. She gathered dry wood and leaves from the area and built a funeral pyre around the man, setting fire to it with the words of a prayer. She watched it, tended to it, until all had burned away. Everything except for his great bear cloak he always wore, which she kept draped around her shoulders the entire night she watched the fire. She wished she could take him back to the village, give him a proper burial. But given his clan and village, and of course his size, this was her only choice. When all was gone, she scattered his ashes to the winds and began to walk.

She had no idea where she was, or where she was going. Grief clouded her mind and all she could think was that she would get to a village and pay for passage back to Iwa. Koyama was dead, but their mission was complete and she needed to report back. How many days she traveled until she got to some no-name nothing town in the middle of nowhere, she wasn't sure.

But the next thing she knew she came to in a dark room, chains around her wrists and ankles. "...where am I?"

The bits of Ume's memory that were missing involved walking down the wrong alley at the wrong time; in her grief-driven stupor, she didn't notice the men creep up behind her in that alley and thwap her over the head with a blackjack, knocking her out cold before she even had a chance to grunt with pain. A short trip later and here she was, chained to a wall in some dim lit dungeon. And here she had been for days, being 'broken in' by these slavers in various, unmentionable ways. All the while she was completely oblivious, lost in her own mind to such an extent that even her captors believed her to be mentally damaged.

Not that they cared; A body was all she needed for their nefarious purposes.

When Ume finally responded, coming to after her catatonic trance-like state, the man who had entered the room was a bit dumbstruck. "Wow... So you can speak. We were beginning to think you were just mental... Must've been through some serious shit to block out everything that's happened to you here. But it's okay, don't worry. In a few seconds you'll be right back in that state..." The man held a syringe in his hand, and slowly made his approach to Ume with a gleaming smile on his face. And of course, once he was close enough, he'd pin her arm to the wall with one hand and jab her with the needle using the other, infecting her with the drug contained within.

Ume gave the man a strange look, but certain pieces slowly came together. She noticed not just her bonds now but the status of her clothes or rather the lack there of. Her clothing was torn and in tatters, hardly covering her in some areas and not at all in others. Memories of certain acts came to mind and she felt her breath quicken. By time the man had her wrist pinned to the wall she was nearly hyperventilating. She whimpered as he injected her with whatever drug he had, but she came to realize what was happening. "No..." she whispered, shaking her head. "I won't... I won't be that..." She realized what he was doing, what they were grooming her for. "Koyama will..." she cut herself off and almost choked on her own words. 'He's dead... he can't save me... no one can...'

She felt the drug start to pull at her mind but her purple eyes remained fixed on this man's face. She could see how happy he was to see the drug take effect, but then suddenly lashed out, aiming to take a chunk of his neck out with her own teeth. She didn't seem to care about jutsu for the moment, but she was determined to make his life hell just as he clearly had been. 'I'm an Akari. I'll act like it.'

The slaver grinned as Ume realized her situation and began to panic, clearly getting some sort of sick pleasure from his duties. The mention of a name intrigued him, causing him to raise an eyebrow in interest, though her words stopping in her throat allowed him to assume the truth. "Ahhh... dead hm? Shame, you're all alone here. Pity for you... wonderful news for us." The man smiled a big, evil grin as the drugs began coursing through her veins. However, he hadn't expected her to lash out in such a way, and as she latched into his neck he screamed with pain before reaching up to punch her in the forehead until she let go.

When she finally did, his hand shot to his neck as he cried out in pain, blood gushing from his neck. Finally, with a grimace of pain and annoyance he reached back and backhanded Ume so hard her head snapped to one side. "Gah, you BITCH!" His rage subsided a moment later, as he could see in her eyes the drugs taking full effect now. "I'm gonna enjoy breaking you..."

Ume whimpered as she was knocked to the ground, dizzied not just by the blow but the drugs as well. She slid down the wall to the floor and lay there on the cold ground a moment as she felt it taking over. Her limbs felt light, her breathing took more work but there was a wondrous side effect. Everything she felt was heightened, the pleasure center of her brain was going mad. "...break me?" she asked, almost breathless as she pushed up from the ground with her hands and looked at the man before her. His blood ran down her lips and chin, her own from her nose from his strike. But there was a smile on her lips. "Don't tell me... overload me with drugs, try to cloud me by screwing with my pleasure senses while you break me physically... heh... you see, there's a problem with that." Ume grinned at him still, not caring about her manner of dress and lack of as she stood and felt her bindings pull at her wrists.

"The only pleasure I want now, is violence." she added as she felt chakra channeling through her body. She felt light as a feather from the drug, and the taste of blood in her mouth went from simply being familiar, to tasting more like a fine wine. The bright blue of her astrashiin helm came up over her head, her wings unfurled from her back and her tail whipped out from behind her and around the piece that kept her chains bound to the floor. With a hard yank they snapped, and a flap of her wings she was on the man, kissing him hard.
Jutsu UsedShow
~Basic Formation: Astrashiin
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
Type: Astrashiin
Channeling chakra to their shiin, they cause it to inflate, fully forming into its full glory. Taking the form of a helmet, the astrashiin is perhaps the weakest of the shiin, having only half the Akari's strength and stamina.

~Basic Formation: Temershiin
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
Type: Temershiin
Channeling chakra to their shiin, they cause it to inflate, fully forming into its full glory. The temershiin takes the shape of a wide and powerful tail. The strength and durability of a temershiin are equal to the user's strength and stamina.

~Basic Formation: Eroshiin
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
Type: Eroshiin
Channeling chakra to their shiin, they cause it to inflate, fully forming into its full glory. Taking the form of energy-like jelly small wings, they are incapable of flight on their own, however are very aerodynamic, allowing for the user to slowly float down, based on their prerequisite taijutsu. The Eroshiin has a strength and stamina equal to 3/4ths the user's strength and stamina.

Fire Forward
C-Ranked Maneuver Taijutsu
Type: Eroshiin
In this Maneuver the user flaps their Eroshiin wings to create a boost to their speed, launching themselves forward at a speed of +6 for a max of five meters. This results in a -6 to Ninjutsu while in use.

Ekirei • Warning Kiss
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
Prerequisite(s): Katon
The user kisses the target on the lips with a passion, leaving behind a feeling like a second degree burn that runs down the esophagus and into the lungs. This may cause a fit of coughing, a soreness throughout the mentioned parts of the body, and a difficulty breathing for two posts. After the two posts the lips remain red as if sore and the pain fades.

The guy grinned at her some more as the drugs took effect and euphoria flowed through her... in fact he was just reaching for his pants by the time she stood up, but before he could reposition her as needed she revealed her secret; She was a ninja. And that was about the time that his heart sank and his body completely deflated, a moment later she was upon him, holding him on the ground and forcing a kiss on him. "Agh, what the fuck are you- AAAAHHHHH!!" His screams resounded through the basement as his insides felt like they were set aflame. He writhed in agony on the floor, clutching at his throat in some vain attempt to get the pain to stop.

He was pretty much incapacitated now, but that scream was easily heard throughout the rest of the building. Sudden movement could be heard as people began mobilizing on the upper floors, and Ume was still drugged with no idea where she was or how to escape... Where would she go? What would she do? She had little time to think...

Ume stood, staring down at the man for several moments. She breathed deep, enjoying all too much the sound of his pain, the feel of it, and her hands moved into seals. With simple movements of the hand, Kouton pellets flew through the air and would rip into him, shredding what was left of him. She felt like she was floating on a cloud as she moved to the door and forced it open. She started down the hallway, not caring who she saw, or who saw her. She giggled aloud. "Violence causes silence they say!" she called, laughing still. "And all I wish for is silence..." she muttered, grinning like a fiend as she kept moving.

Another girl ran out in front of her, running away but it was as if Ume didn't even recognize friend from foe in this drug induced state. She formed the seals for the same jutsu and sent Kouton pellets ripping through her as well, laughing all the way along as she walked.
Jutsu UsedShow
*Kouton • Pellet Storm
D-Ranked Ninjutsu
After performing the required hand seals, the user will expel a cloud of metallic pebbles in a cone reaching 10m from themselves and expanding to 5m wide at 5 speed. The pellets strike with 5 strength and have spiked edges for maximum damage.

It was clear, as the few men who approached her saw Ume's fully revealed shiin, that they were out of their depth with this woman. And even worse still, as they watched her lay waste to an innocent bystander, it became even more clear that she cared not for anything. Not their well being, not her well being, and certainly not that innocent woman's well being. No, she was too far gone; her mind altered by grief and drugs, the Ume known by Iwagakure was sitting in the back seat while this thing piloted her body. And it wanted blood. Lots of it.

The men huddled up in the hall, using simple bottleneck tactics to try and stop her from approaching too close or making her escape. It was four men total; two in the front with shields and two in the back with spears to jab at her. They slowly inched down the narrow hallway, clearly afraid of what might happen to them if they failed, if she won this little standoff...

Ume grinned sadistically as the men came into view and she relished in their reaction to the newest corpse that now leaked blood all over the floor. "I come to make silence of you." she said with that insane grin and a laugh as her hands moved through seals. A Kouton wall rose out in front of her and even the feeling of the chakra flowing through her brought her an ecstasy she had never felt before. If she ever dared give voice to it, she might have even admitted it was far superior to things she felt in certain moments with Tatsuo.

With the wall in place, Ume grinned again, forming additional seals and focusing on that wall. A moment later it would burst into a cloud of flying senbon, aimed for every man in that hall.
Jutsu UsedShow
*Kouton • Wall
C-Ranked Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals the user causes a wall of steel to emerge from the ground up to 4 metres in height at 10 speed. This wall can block attacks up to 10 strength, and remains until it is destroyed. The koton passive will no longer apply on attacks that effect it after 3 posts.

*Kouton • Spray
C-Ranked Ninjutsu
After performing the correct hand seals, the user will cause a source of metal larger than a person to start spraying a cloud of needles in a single direction at 10 speed and 10 strength. This cloud goes 20 metres from the point of origin, while also being 10 metres in width.

The men faltered as Ume formed her hand seals, not quite sure how to handle combat with a shinobi as they had never prepared for this. And of course, they were even less prepared for the wall exploding forth in a series of metal needles, many of which penetrated vital areas within their bodies. Their shields did little to give pause to the assault, and by the time the needles stopped spraying the men were all dead. It looked like a metal porcupine exploded in the hallway... but behind the men was a door that led outside, a door to freedom...

But what then? Even if she left this den of drugs, the injection she had just been given was not the first, her body was already hooked on the drugs in her veins. And to top that off, what next? Just go back to Iwagakure as if nothing ever happened? Could she even return to the village as she was now, disgraced and alone? Maybe the village already thought she was dead too and had written her off... Maybe this was a sign to change the course of her life.

Maybe she didn't want to return to Iwa.

Ume was still grinning as she stepped across those bodies, unphased by the violence beneath her feet and even pleased by it. She relished in it. She pushed the door open and stepped out into the moonlight. It was a market street she looked upon, but it was empty simply because of the hour. She paused, leaning against the wall of the building as she looked around and stumbled down the street. Somewhere she eventually fell into another alley, and the drugs pulled her into a sleep of floating nightmares.

By time she awoke, the sun was high and noise permeated the air. Someone had left her a cloak and she pulled it around herself with a shiver. Her body ached in a way she had never before experienced and she could barely breathe. She could hear a voice telling her to find the drug, to find her level. But even as her body ached for that same drug, her mind rebelled against it. Visions of broken bodies flashed up in front of her face and she recoiled from them. She shook, and she couldn't speak. Someone dropped a few coins in front of her and she snatched them up, tears still in her eyes and screams in her throat as she struggled in that alley. She fought memories and a madness she had never known before.

Eventually a dealer found her, he didn't even ask. He took her coins and left pills in her hands, the sort that would dissolve under her tongue and she took one. It wasn't the same drug, but it allowed herself to disassociate from the pain, it gave her enough frame of mind to pull herself to the streets to sit with the other beggars.

Going home wasn't even a thought in her mind...

7 months later
In a dimly lit alley somewhere in a no name village on the outskirts of Rock Country, a particular 'man' donning a yellow cloak shifted and slithered his way throughout the town. He had no real direction... except for 'away from the guys chasing him' of course, but other than that he wasn't really aiming to go anywhere. He was mostly just taking in the sights, enjoying life again after an eternity of isolation, or at least what seemed like an eternity... It was really hard to tell sometimes. But eventually, he happened upon this particular alley, and found a sole, particular woman among the group of other people.

"My oh my... One of these things is not like the others. You definitely do not belong child." the odd, masked thing of a man tilted it's head in curiosity as he gazed upon the blue haired woman, lying in a pile of filth and dirt, hardly covered by tattered rags of clothes and zoned out of her own mind. But he could see deeper than that too, he could peer beneath her flesh and into her soul, and he knew deep down that this is not who she was... It was not who she was meant to be. "What in the world could have gone so wrong in your life that you've degenerated to such a... pitiful form?"

Many of the alleys here seemed to house doorways to homes, or the homeless. There really was no inbetween. But Ume herself had found her way to an alley most avoided. Most of the people there had lost their minds in one way or another and this is where they were left to die really. Though this also made them prime targets. Dealers wandered through taking coin and giving drugs with empty promises just to make easy money. Thieves wandered through to pick anything left that might have any kind of value. Some here had boxes to sleep in, but not Ume. She couldn't even bring herself to find anything. She had a cloak and her tattered clothing, nothing more. She was out of sight and out of mind, until her body felt like it burned with acidic fire. In reality it was the mental toll of all she had done combined with the plague she suffered.

Her veins had turned black in her shoulder again, working their way down towards her fingers. Today as she began to scream, faces of the dead rising up before her, she felt someone search her and move away with her coin, but she also moved her fingers and found a pill pressed into them. She stuck it under her tongue to let it melt and lay on the dirty ground to let it take hold. It held the plague at bay by giving her back enough control of her chakra to do so, but also took her mind away enough to slow the appearance of blood and memories.

She hardly heard the man speak as he stood over her. Her eyes flitted open and she saw a strangeness on the ground rather than feet like she had expected, and looked up into the man's face. Her eyes were barely open and she simply let out a giggle.

The cloaked man was known for his unpredictability, for being untrustworthy, as his intentions could shift at the drop of a pin. He was known for causing mayhem simply for the sake of doing so, but what wasn't as well known about him was his desire to set right what was made wrong... well, what was made wrong by someone other than him, anyways. He wasn't cruel or evil in the traditional sense of the word, he was simply impulsive. And right now, his impulses were telling him to fix what was broken within this woman's mind. Something about her... just seemed wrong. Different from the rest of the rabble inhabiting this alleyway. While most were here simply chasing their next high, waiting for the embrace of death to take them, she was... running. Escaping her pain, disassociating from reality through the use of drugs to flee from the terrors in her mind.

"I can make those terrors go away, child. Take a deep breath and relax..."

An aura of chakra surrounded the strange man, who would build this power within himself to a critical point before reaching out with his hands, attempting to place them on the sides of her head. But this would not work unless she truly wanted it to. Deep down, this woman had to yearn for a healthy mind, she had to have the desire to heal. Otherwise, she would simply be too far gone... even he would be unable to help.

Tears may have stained her cheeks already but another ran down its track on the left side of her face as his hands touched her head. The drugs she took now were different than those fed to her by men that tried to make her something she wasn't. They had broken her, these drugs didn't heighten any pleasure centers in her mind like the others, no these instead dampened everything. Nothing even sounded right and a weight was left like an elephant sitting on her chest. But it was worth it to lose the memories of bloodshed she had caused, but most of all to lose the memories of greedy men and dirty hands and what they had done to her.

To say she wanted a healthy mind was probably less accurate than to say she wanted to forget those greedy men and greedy paws. But in this instance that desire ran on the same track and she accepted as he touched the sides of her head, even taking a comfort in her first real human contact in months. She relaxed into his touch. If her head had been clear she might have been suspect of a stranger using chakra on her that she knew nothing of, but she was so lost she simply accepted whatever came her way.

Her mind's inhibitions faded to nonexistence as the doorway to her mind was opened to the cloaked man. He delved deep within her mind, sifting through her memories one by one like turning pages through a reference book, looking for just the right entry. Flipping page after page, memory after memory, page after memory... it was all a blur, even to his ageless mind. Such a young, broken mind... You sanity is fractured, cracked, but not yet broken. I can mend the wounds, but the price may be great... or it may be negligible. Oh- There it is."

He seemed to pause in his own thoughts as he happened upon the last few months of her life. The pain, the agony, the loss... the blood. So much blood. Too much blood. Unwanted acts on unwilling recipients. Unnecessary death, undesirable outcomes. He saw it all, floating about in the aether that was her nebulous mind. He walked among her thoughts, a silent invisible bystander to the most painful of interactions. He saw it all, her fogged mind bore witness to horrific atrocities and pain beyond measure, the wanton destruction and murder caused by selfish, undesirable people. He saw it all.

He saw it all.

And then, in an instant... it was gone. All of it. All of the pain, the misery, the ruin, the self loathing, the suicidal tendencies, the death, the undesired actions taken against her, against others... gone. The fog would be lifted, her mind would be cleared of the pain. In one single action, one brief touch, every ounce of agony this poor girl had been through would vanish. It ceased to exist- no, it never existed in the first place. What pain? What misery? No, there was nothing. Just a blank void, nothing more and nothing less. "I've done what I can. The rest falls to you child. I've given you a shovel, now dig your way out."

Her eyes closed as the stranger touched her head, but she certainly wasn't expecting what came shortly after. She found memories flying through the forefront of her mind and her hands suddenly came up and grabbed the stranger's forearms, attempting to keep herself from falling as her breath quickened. She felt him ease her down to the ground, his hands still on either side of her head. But even if she tried to open her eyes all she could see were the memories. As he got to what had left her in such a wretched state she whimpered and writhed. The drugs may have kept the thoughts at bay but as they were forcibly pulled to the front it was as if the drugs had had no effect. She cried, tears running down either side of her face, and she screamed, and she begged the men who were no longer present to stop. She begged herself to stop the wanton slaughter that had come after.

Yet then suddenly it was gone, and every word and sound died on her lips. She breathed heavily, eyes fluttering open as she looked up at the man who leaned over her. She could still feel the drugs and their impact, she felt like an elephant sat on her chest but her mind was floating to euphoria. The man leaning over her was blurred and she couldn't quite understand what he said. She couldn't even bring herself to speak, but she brought a single hand up to try and touch the side of his face.

It was the closest he would get to a 'thank you' from the girl, who had no idea what had just happened or even that she owed him any such words.

If a smile were possible for this man, he would probably do so as the girl awoke from her neverending nightmare and touched his pallid mask. He knew what she wanted to say, knew that she would seek to show her gratitude to him in some way, but with a cold inhuman touch he pressed a finger to her forehead. "Heal. That is how you can thank me. Be what you are meant to be." He then dropped the finger down to her nose and with a simple chuckle he poked the tip of her nose. "Boop!"

His boop was apparently a bit too loud though, as a moment later a man emerged around the corner and peered down the alley. "Hey guys, there he is! Get him!" Instantly the cloaked, masked man rose up unnaturally, like a snake writhing and wriggling as his body turned to look at what was now a group of 3 or 4 men.
"AH, SOMEBODY SQUEELED! AHHHHHHH!" Finally the man, who had just moments before been so serious and stoic, was now flailing his arms about like a mad man as he took off in the opposite direction of the men. It looked like something out of a cartoon, the yellow cloaked man screaming as he fled from his pursuers, who came bolting through the alley after him yelling about some thing he had stolen from one of them.

In any case, no one else would have the time to question the eccentric, odd exchange. As quickly as he had come, he was gone... and now Ume sat alone in a dark, dim alley.

Ume was just simply confused. She stared at the man as she tried to puzzle together what just happened, and what he was talking about. Even as he made a small joke of poking her nose, she simply stared at him. In truth, it was about all the drugs would allow her to do. What followed next was an event that would eventually having her laughing until she cried, after the drugs wore off of course. After all, not only was it strange and hilarious, seeing as everything Ume saw was more colorful and yet blurred, it probably looked ten times as funny from her point of view. However in her current drugged state about all she could manage was laying down and turning her head to watch him go.

Upside of course was as a man ran by to catch him, Ume's outstretched arm tricked him. She wasn't even sure it was an accident, and she earned a harsh kick for her trouble, but at the least it left her with a small smile on her lips. She didn't know the man, and as she fell into a drug induced sleep she couldn't figure out what he had done.

But in a few days' time, what that man did left her mind open just enough for someone she knew to reach through to her...
